12 oz. bottled 07/12/16

Pours clear copper amber with a creamy off-white foam head. Smells like big cinnamon and nutmeg spices, some bready caramely malt, brown sugar, pumpkin, with minty grassy pine. Tastes like copper amber malts, cinnamon and nutmeg spices, bready caramel, brown sugar, pumpkin, with minty herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a nice pumpkin ale.

I remember that this was one of the better pumpkin beers I have had when I had it roughly a year ago.

New beer Friday, New Holland Ichabod Pumpkin Ale, 4.5% ABV, 25 IBU. Pours orange and thin with 3 finger white head, OK lacing. Nose is slight pumpkin and cinnamon. Taste is roast malt, pumpkin, cinnamon, moderate bitter close. Overall a decent pumpkin beer that actually tastes like pumpkin.

Pours the color of clear apple juice, with a centimeter-thick, fizzy, khaki head. Aroma is of pumpkin, roasted malts, and barley. Pumpkin is forward in the flavor profile, with roasted malts and barley hiding behind. Mouth feel is thin and somewhat fizzy. Overall, it's a pretty good brew. The pumpkin is good, and flavorful, without being over-the-top or fake.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Poured this into a beer glass, it pours a nice copper color with no foam head.

Smells lightly of pumpkin spice, light ale scent, watery.

Tastes like a bitterish ale with a pumpkin spice tone to it.

A bit watery, thin, and not very carbonated it drinks easy like the water feel/taste it has.

overall, wasn't expecting much and didn't get much, looks really good ina glass but the taste is underwhelming.

You do get some pumpkin bust mostly in the nose. Not very robust and hardly tasted it on the tongue. Drinks easily but really an average beer in the pumpkin ale class.

You'd be better served buying Sam Adams Pumkin Ale instead but I give my Michigan beers the first go. Far from NHBC's best work.
